be somebody to run the u.s. government. in this particular case it is energy secretary steven chew. i was there at the briefing that he gave today and he really went after the president. he said that he lacks the courage hearing lacks the guts to take the liberal side of the party and made his basic point that president obama would pursue and he does in his speech tonight, taxes on the rich, but unwilling to get tough on entitlements which, of course, is an anathema to the left wing of the party. >> while he has refused to agree to some to raise for example retirement for medicare but has agreed to reduce social security benefits by enacting a different method for cost of living increases. white house claims that he has put $1.4 trillion cuts on the table. republicans don't agree all of those are cuts. it counts is savings from ending the wars if iraq and afghanistan, but the president will contend tonight that the country is much further along toward dealing with its spending program, dealing with its deficit problem than republicans will accept. we'll hear a different version of tha
. and that member this evening is the departing energy secretary steven chu. so if the worst happens prepare for president steven chu. wolf blitzer, already saying that he welcomes president chu. >> steven chu, the energy secretary, the designated hitter god forbid in case of emergency. this will be one of theirs last official acts including, of course, the defense secretary leon panetta. momentarily we'll hear paul irving, the house sergeant at arms announce that the president of the united states is coming in with those very famous words, mr. speaker, the president of the united states. then the president will walk in. you see members of the cabinet walking in including dennis mcdonough, the new white house chief of staff, at the top of the screen. he's designated as a member of the cabinet, the white house chief of staff. john mccain, lindsey graham, they're always together. not surprisingly. they're good friends, allies on so many of these issues. this is a moment where so many members of the house and the senate, democrats and republicans, some actually try to sit together to demonstrat

( applause ) >> woodruff: so at nine minutes after 9:00 eastern time, president obama makes his way in. the official plan had been for him to come in a minute or two after. but i guess he has a prerogative of being a few minutes later than what we were told. >> he just can't stop himself. he jus
, energy, and manufacturing, which will help the middle class. i think progressives are hoping he will put forward policies in line with his inaugural vision -- progressive, aggressive, and inspirational. that is what they are hoping to hear tonight. how host: about the selection of marco roby roma -- hamas host: -- host: how about the selection of marco rubio? guest: he has only been in the senate a couple of years. republicans are also looking past mitt romney's defeat. they are looking forward to someone who will deliver an address in both english and spanish. the republicans are losing hispanics, young voters, and women. rubio only has tea party appeal, but mass appeal. that is why his speech is so important, what he represents about the party's future. host: the tea party is also being represented in a separate response by senator rand paul. what does that suggest about the tea party influence in washington, and who speaks for them? guest: a great question. unlike a lot of things in the republican party right now, a lot of disarray, a lot of confusion. rimpau and marco rubio are not n
jobs and the economy. really? but will there be anything new? or just more green energy and higher taxes? we've heard that stuff before, but let's go to our panel. here's robert wolfe host of impact players on reuters tv. cnbc contributor bob lutz. former gm vice chair and author of car guys versus bean counters. and michael steele former republican national committee chairman. welcome, gentlemen. bob lutz, let me go to you. what do you want to hear from the president tomorrow night? >> well, i'd like to hear a genuine jobs creation scheme, a reduction or certainly a mitigation of a lot of current regulations. and less emphasis on green energy schemes. i was very somewhat frightened by the inaugural address citing global warming as the -- co2 reduction as the number one priority. that sounds to me like more green energy schemes and a deemphasis on something like exploiting the nation's plentiful shale gas reserves which if properly exploited could make us hugely competitive as a manufacturer. but i'm afraid all that's going to be on the back burner because according to the inaugura
through a list of other issues from energy to manufacturing, touched on foreign policy and at the end reached, i think it's fair to say, an emotional crescendo when he talked about gun violence in america and recognized a number of individuals there in the house chamber who have been touched by gun violence. either they're the survivors, surviving family members or who themselves have been victims of gun violence. mark, we were counting, i think, as he went through... i know i made some notes. almost a dozen new initiatives the president announced on everything from international trade to higher education to doing something about the voting experience in america. it seemed like the president was trying to inject some energy into his second term. >> i agree wu, judy. i just want to underline the emotional apex of the evening was undoubtedly the "deserve a vote" chant that the president led when he spoke on gun control and the need, making the argument that our police departments were outgunned by those with assault weapons with criminal intent. and i thought that a speech that quite fr
's energy secretary steven chu. this person is known as the designated survivor, if you can believe it. a term of distinction. savannah guthrie, let's talk about the atmospherics in the hall, what we can see, and what will be off camera. >> we touched on it already. the atmosphere in terms of the bitterness and the divided nature of our government right now. if you talk to republicans and democrats, the view you get of the other party is just so stark. as far as the speaker and republicans are concerned, the president emboldened, confrontational, wants to obliterate the party. on the side of the white house, aides think the republican party is fractured, weak, vulnerable, unable to govern itself and unable to make deals to solve the big problem and you've alluded to it, an incredible emotional weight inside this hall tonight, because of the many, many victims of gun violence there. a coordinated campaign by one congressman to have multiple victims of gun violence sitting there in the hall. you see them with green ribbons, and issue the president has not brought up in any state of the u
care, high energy race. is that the kind of government we want to buy a? is that the government we want to put our money and? i don't think so. we've got to step back and responsibly address those. do we believe there's appropriate things for government to spend money on? absolutely. i didn't support the stimulus package of 2009 because i thought it would do what he did, which is a solo bunch of money and not get remarkable results for our economy. in fact come in at her harmed her ability to come out of the recession. one of the things they could have done had it been spent and a different way would have been to revitalize the infrastructure of our country. water, sewer, rose, huge investments. but a fraction is used for something resulting in the public goods. so there are things government ought to spend money on an infrastructure is one of them. >> david morgan with readers. i would like to know if you expect the north korean nuclear test to accelerate efforts to get a deal done on the sequester.

government, everything, everything, post office, roads, transportation, justice, education, energy, defense, everything else is about $1 trillion. you all just heard what the deficit was last year. $1.3 trillion. which means we can do away with the entire federal government with the exception of medicare, medicaid and social security and we wouldn't even balance the budget. that's the magnitude of the challenge that we have. so it's incumbent upon us to come up with solutions, positive solutions. so what are we trying to do on the house republican side? our goals as we step back and look and try to focus on what the goals ought to be are to increase economic freedom, to provide economic greater opportunity for individuals, to balance the budget within a 10-year period of time so that we can create that economic vitality in this country and create jobs and pass off that wonderful great land of opportunity to our kids and our grandkids so that their dreams can be realized and not stifled. along those lines we've laid out a three to four honor month strategy that started a couple weeks ago whe
